This is what we all were waiting for seriously! A low priced tablet that did not break the bank and comes with an 8 inch screen. OLPC is bringing in the XO 3.0 to CES this week!
The XO 3.0 tablet has been designed by Yves Behar, has a rugged case, and can be charged via a hand crank or solar panel.
The XO 3.0 has an 8-inch, 1024 x 768-resolution PixelQi display, a Marvell Armada PXA618 processor, 512MB of RAM, and will be configurable with either Android or Sugar operating systems.
Sugar is OLPC's own Linux operating system, which was designed specifically for kids. And that bit about countries is very important. The XO 3.0, like the XO laptops, won't be sold directly to consumers or parents. OLPC will sell the tablets in bulk to countries who want to ensure their children have computers, and won't produce units until orders come in.
This will be a challenge for Aakash, the worlds cheapest tablet for 35$ from India.
More as we know it.
